Deal with people at the level that they are in else you might not reach them.

God saw that it will be difficult for people to believe should he have tried to reconcile us with him in his spiritual being. Instead he came in an image we are familiar with, the flesh.

Romans 8:3 For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh.

Sometimes you need to lower yourself to a level where people are for them to hear you and connect with you.

Jesus could have turned the water to juice but instead turned it to wine because that’s what the people identified with at the time. John 2:9 When the master of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and did not know where it came from (but the servants who had drawn the water knew), the master of the feast called the bridegroom.

You cannot speak to new believers the same way you deal with those who have been in Christ longer. Understand that people are not the same not that others cannot change, they need to be natured. Hebrews 5:12-14 For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food. For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe. But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
